Standing at back of room Barbara Eichorst (in the center) and me
This past June I met Barbara Eichorst of Healthy Interactions. Barbara is an amazing person – a workhorse for sure traveling the world, and I mean the world. She might be in Pakistan or Poland or Tucson on any given day educating diabetes educators. She is one herself as well as an RD and leading Healthy Interactions’ global training and development.
Barbara and my first real communication, beyond Facebook, was Messengering while she was doing a workshop in Kyoto, Japan and I was coincidentally sitting in a Starbucks in Tokyo, Japan. She was working, I was vacationing. We realized we would both be at the American Association of Diabetes Educators conference in San Diego, so pledged to meet there.
In San Diego I joined her and a dozen of her educators from Hong Kong. We had a great time. She asked me to guest post for Healthy Interactions. Below is Barbara’s intro to the post. Click here for the full post. Enjoy.
